Stanley D. Petter Jr., a veteran bloodstock agent, has become a consultant to the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation, with the aim of introducing and informing the Thoroughbred community about the expanding world-class facilities and important International activities being conducted at the park.
A native Kentuckian, Petter has had a long association with the Kentucky Horse Park. In 1978, the year the park officially opened, Petter was a part of the original committee that brought the World Three-Day Championships to Kentucky. Now known as the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, it is one of only six three-day events in the world that is ranked at the highest level with a CCI 4-star ranking.
One of the first in the industry to offer his entire crop as weanlings, Petter enjoyed such success that he became known as “the weanling man" and has sold uner the Hurricane Hall name for nearly 40 years.
“I’m flattered that the foundation has asked me to help, as I have had a long association and love affair with the Horse Park,” said Petter. “It will be fun to remind fellow horsemen about the great attributes of the park and to spread the word about the amazing new developments.”
The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that utilizes the private sector to enhance, expand, and improve the Kentucky Horse Park. Along with the strong support from the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the foundation helps the park build and maintain show facilities, complete landscaping projects, and host special art exhibits.
